It depends on how you can deal with it. Many people come to ACCA not knowing a thing about it. They see their seniors doing it or friends doing it or they heard good things about ACCA from somewhere else and they quickly jump to conclusion that they also need to do ACCA. And most commonly people switch to ACCA right after their A levels because they think graduation is a long journey whereas doing ACCA will make them achieve a lot more than that. But the reality is a little different.

If you keep struggling to pass the first 9 papers for years, it will be very painful for you. Many people even dropped ACCA completely in the middle of their journey. Many people struggle to pass the first 9 papers even after spending 6 years or more. If that happens to you then you will certainly feel that graduation was way better at that point but time is lost by then.

I have seen ppl completing ACCA in just 3 years or less and I have also seen people still doing it after 10+ years.

Now if you are really really dedicated, could give your best shot in every paper, stay committed the same way, have the willingness to read, write, practice, and memorize like you have never done before, and keep doing it over and over again then you can give it a try. Don't think that you can have a very good social life and still pass your exams quickly.

If you do decide to get into ACCA, then I would suggest you try passing the first 3 papers in 3 months' time. Then sit one exam in every session after every 3 months, confirm your pass in that paper and move on to the next. Make sure to pass the first 9 papers as quickly as possible and apply for Oxford Brookes degree. And after that, you can start again with your P level papers.

Don't end up like me. I wish someone told me all this when I first started it when I was just like you.
